Vocatio Center: Shelterwood On Campus Informational Interviews

November 9, 2013: 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Barefoot Student Union Building, Outside the Lex

Shelterwood is a Christian therapeutic boarding school for at-risk teenagers, located in Independence, Missouri (eastern side of Kansas City). Between 40-60 teens from across the country live in our program with live-in staff. Most of our live-in staff are recent college graduates from across the country that have an interest in ministering with youth. Some of the best big brothers and sisters we have found for our program also are folks who were Resident Assistants in college. Our program requires a level of maturity and humility. It's a very challenging year of working many hours each week working with these teens. Dealing with conflict, anger issues, oppositional defiance, etc. teaches our staff patience, endurance, and humility. Our staff provides weekly training for the college graduates. During the year, men and women who join us for the year receive $1,000 a month stipend to help cover personal expenses, free room and board and insurance benefits, along with our ongoing training and encouragement throughout the year.

Follow up interviews may be held in the Vocatio Center after meeting with the Shelterwood staff outside of the Lex.

Apply today and meet with Shelterwood staff on Friday, November 8th, outside of the Lex!
